In this classic Hans Christian Andersen tale, a vain Emperor falls prey to two swindlers who convince him to purchase expensive garments that are invisible.

The script itself is about seven pages long (running time of 10-12 minutes).

This script also includes:

  • A study guide that gives a synopsis of the story and a list of though-provoking discussion questions.
  • Four detailed drama activities that directly relate to the story.
  • Production notes that offer suggestions for casting, costuming, set design and more!

The Drama Notebook Scripts+ Activities are unique to Drama Notebook. The scripts are written to accommodate a flexible number of cast members, and the extension activities and study guides are designed to help students develop a connection to the lessons in the story and to deepen their understanding of the text.
